Trying to describe myself, the following adjectives come to mind - friendly, positive, energetic, adventurous, passionate, spontaneous, intelligent, and direct. I work hard, yet take the time to travel. I'm a vibrant, generous, intelligent, happy person who's looking for someone who is genuine and has a positive outlook on life. I love good food, culture, spirited conversations, respectful debates, worldliness, irreverence, and laughter. To me there is nothing better than a day/evening spent with good food, drinks, lively conversation and friends. I work and play in Queens and Manhattan, to me the best of both worlds. I have both small town and cosmopolitan leanings, having grown up in New York, go to college and grad school in NYC, and then moved to Philadelphia for a few years for work. I have traveled quite a bit, but I am equally at home in a dive bar with peanut shells on the floor, in a Michelin starred restaurant, and everything in between. I am driven and goal-oriented, proud of my accomplishments but don’t take myself too seriously (and hope you have the same outlook on things). My career is important to me, but so is living and I hope you feel the same way. After all life is short and we don’t get to come back. I'm easy going, I have a lot going for myself, I'm a go getter, I have goals. I want a woman that has her stuff together. Has a good career. Has goals, outgoing and can hold her own and a great personality.
